Keating Farm’s amazing venue and unbeatable hospitality, provided an ultimate atmosphere of warmth, comfort, happiness, and love. From the rustic farmhouse suites to the stunning wood barn, through the orchid and into the memorable pristine wooden hall, our true farm wedding came true!
From the very day we arrived at Keating Farm for the first time we were certain this was where we would have our special moment. Keating Farm’s Rebecca greeted us with a warm welcoming, professionalism, and genuine kindness which was not forgotten and turned an already remarkable location into one that everyone should experience.
Despite being frantic and nervous the night before the wedding, Rebecca was there to assist with all our needs during our rehearsal and set up. Following into our wedding day, Rebecca, was again attentive and on scene floating in the background to ensure everything was perfect and for that we thank Rebecca very much!
With our ceremony out in the orchid and to stunning pictures in the fields we truly were able to capture our wedding experience that we longed for. With magnificent colours in the tress, the natural farm fields, the sunsetting in the background, Keating Farm was more than breath taking!
Keating Farm’s unbeatable large rustic wooden barn created a warm and unique atmosphere to allow friends and family to share laughter, food, drinks, and tears. It was a truly special arrangements for our first meal as newly weds. Again, Rebecca was there to help us set up the night before and provided stunning décor to tie everything together.
Not only was Keating Farm itself a gem, but we were truly able to experience a farm to table dinner. To remain local and to have Keating farm provided substance made our dinner all the more delicious. Supporting local was a big factor for us, and Keating Farm was able to deliver to perfection.
And finally, the grand hall. The cherry on top. The hidden wonder. The perfect place to sing and dance and come together to unleash the celebrations of a truly magnificent day! Foot stomping and handclapping, swinging and twirling, to pure entertainment, the grand hall at Keating Farm with its aura and warmth of the fireplaces, provided an antique feel with a modern celebration to create pure ecstasy! We were so grateful to have the dance party of a lifetime with our friends and family there thanks to Rebecca all her hard work!
With the night over and our friends and family laughing and singing all the way home thanks to Keating Farm’s warm wonders, we were again spoilt with the breathtaking suites for our first night as a married couple. Keating Farm is truly the place to be for an occasion so special!
Rebecca and Keating Farm were able to help us create our dream day, a day we will never forget! We will always hold Keating Farm dear in our hearts and wish everyone could share what we had at the unforgettable Keating Farm!
E & B - July 2022
The venue is steeped in history, with all buildings restored to their former glory... and then some! We had our ceremony in the picturesque pasture, a long table dinner in the nut orchard, and a roaring good time dancing in the great hall. We couldn't have imagined a more down to earth, elegant venue to celebrate with our friends and family. Almost a year out, our loved ones regularly comment on the kindness of the Keating Farm owners and the small details they noticed around the property.
Rebecca and George have created a gem in the Cowichan Valley. They are warm, welcoming, and responsive, making planning a breeze. Our vendors appreciated the attention to detail and behind the scenes flow that the mudroom and separate driveways provided.
Like many, our original wedding day was affected by COVID and we had to postpone our larger family wedding. We wanted to mark our special day on Dec 3 anyway with an intimate ceremony and Keating Farm was the perfect venue.
Rebecca and George were so welcoming, responsive, flexible and easy to work with. The farmhouse is stunning with it's rich, dark wood and vaulted ceilings. We honestly felt right at home and all those pre-wedding jitters just melted away.
We highly recommend Keating Farm for your special day - big or small - you won't be disappointed!
The owners were very warm and polite and maintained a friendly professionalism.
There house is stunning. Not only is it exterior beautiful but the breath taking moment happened when we entered the great hall, I have never seen a room quite as unique and beautiful.
